Hi lovelies!! So, I’m back from taking a break from everything which included a break from my blog as well. Four weeks ago, I decided to take a break from blogging, reading and promoting of my products/business to strictly focus on sorting out the important things in my life. Don’t get me wrong, all of these things I stopped doing are equally important but desperate times calls for desperate measures.
At first, I was very reluctant to stop posting on my blog because, I wasn’t sure if taking a break from blogging will break my blog. Taking a break went against everything I’ve learnt about the blogging world. Consistency is one of the important things when it comes to blogging.
I was also scared because I was just nominated for an award (website of the year) and being inconsistent could potentially jeopardise that.
However, dealing with life issues as well as blogging and reading is extremely challenging and I was not feeling in control of things. The thought of even picking up a book to read, one of my favourite things to do was so difficult. Heck! I didn’t even want to see or open my laptop. I just could not find the motivation to do the things I enjoyed doing and was questioning if there was a purpose to it all.
Taking a break from blogging had an effect on my stats but it was not drastic. Now that I am back, I’m hoping to bring the numbers back to normal and to grow bigger and better.
In the midst of everything, there was also some good things that has happened and would be sharing them with you guys in my next blog posts.
Finally, I am so glad I gave myself a time out on everything. It was very much needed.
